Cream Wafer Lemon Stacks
1 hr 50 min
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
cup butter, softened
cup heavy whipping cream
Clear edible glitter, if desired
tablespoon grated lemon peel
cup lemon juice (about 5 large lemons)
tablespoons cold butter, cut-up
eggs, slightly beaten
cup blueberry jam
In medium bowl, beat flour, butter and whipping cream with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Cover; refrigerate about 1 hour or until firm.
Heat oven to 375°F. On lightly floured surface, roll out one-third dough at a time to 1/8-inch thickness. (Keep remaining dough refrigerated until ready to use.) Using 1 1/2-inch cookie cutters, cut out dough into 60 desired shapes (at least 3 of each shape), gently pressing together and rerolling scraps as necessary.
With pancake turner, transfer cutouts to plate of sugar, turning to coat both sides. On ungreased cookie sheets, place cutouts 1 inch apart. Prick each cutout 4 times with fork. Bake 7 to 9 minutes or just until set but not brown. Sprinkle each wafer with 1/4 teaspoon glitter; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
Meanwhile, in 1 1/2-quart heavy saucepan, mix sugar, lemon peel and lemon juice with wire whisk. Stir in butter and eggs. Cook over medium heat about 8 minutes, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and coats back of spoon (do not boil). Immediately pour into one 1-pint container or two 1-cup containers; cool 30 minutes.
To make stacks, spread 1/2 teaspoon cooled lemon curd on tops of each of 20 wafers; spread 1/2 teaspoon jam on tops of each of another 20 wafers. Stack together; top each stack with the remaining 20 wafers, top side up.
Tip For best results, rerolling dough more than twice is not recommended.
